Wireless Transceivers

wireless transceiver

The SPARK SR1000 UWB IC series takes full advantage of ultra-wideband (UWB) technology to simultaneously deliver industry-leading energy efficiency, latency and bandwidth:

  • Data rates of up to 6 Mbps @ 1.5 nJ/bit energy efficiency
  • 2 mW power consumption while transmitting and receiving 1 Mbps, scaling to 6 uW at 1 kbps
  • Ultra-short wireless latency (50 µs for 1 kb)
  • Time-of-flight positioning

The SPARK SR1000 series consists of two products:

  • SR1010: 3.1 – 5.8 GHz band
  • SR1020: 6.0 – 9.3 GHz band

EVALUATION KITS

The SPARK SR1000 Series Evaluation Kit is meant to demonstrate the capabilities of the SR1010 and SR1020 low power, high data rate radio transceiver family. It allows users to benchmark the SR1000 family’s unique qualities in terms of data rate, power consumption, and latency according to different configurable presets.

SPARK SR1000 Family Evaluation Kits Features:

  • Low latency audio streaming demonstrator:
    – 5 ms latency uncompressed 48 kSps 16-bit stereo
  • Wireless link quality statistics
  • Power and latency monitoring
  • Time-of-flight positioning demonstrator
  •  Advanced mode for customization
  • Battery-less sensor nodes
